Not because we’ve lost Mal (Malcolm Young), Phil or Brian. Everything changes,” Williams said. “I’m ready to get off the road and do what I do in between tours…It's just my time. I'm happy I just need family time, just chill out and not do this." Williams continued, “I couldn't have asked for anything more -- being with the people I'm with and have been, »

AC/DC shakeup: Brian Johnson feels he got 'kicked to the curb'

15 March 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Many in the hard rock world were shook all night long when word came out that AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson was told by doctors to stop touring immediately because he faces major hearing problems. But just days removed from this announcement, Johnson is changing his tune, and it's starting to look like he was booted from the band. According to Johnson’s friend, comedian and broadcaster Jim Breuer, the singer “feels like he just kind of got kicked to the curb.” Breuer broke the news during an interview on The Metal In Me podcast.   Breuer added, “He was depressed. I’ve never seen him down before. He’s really depressed.” This is the second departure from the legendary band in recent years. In 2014, founding member and guitarist Malcolm Young had to retire due to dementia. Johnson joined AC/DC in 1980 following the death of the band’s then lead singer Bon Scott. »
